the right thing or not? let's take a look at rush limbaugh today and what he had to say about the democratic party. >> right out of adoofl hitler's playbook. now, what are the similarities between the democrat party of today and the nazi party in germany? well, the nazis were against big business. they hated big business, and, of course, we all know that they were opposed to jewish capitalism. they were insanely irrationally against pollution. they were for two years mandatory voluntary service to germany. they had a whole bunch of make work projects to keep people working, one of which was the autobahn. they were against cruelty and viv vi section of animals, but in the radical sense of devaluing human life they banned smoking. they were totally against that. they were for abortion and euthanasia of the undesirables as we all know, and they were for cradle to grave nationalized health care. >> i do not know where to begin, but i'm going to start with bob shrum. bob, i thought i heard everything. they are insanely against pollution. well, there you have it. anybody who is against pollution i
and job you say it's the wild people. the rush limbaughs and the birthers and nare the real people. >> the squeaky wheel gets the grease and the wild people, the iroquois have all the power and they're the ones who have the forum and the audience. chris: looking ahead, a four-year term or an eight-year presidency, will the attack be from the fringe or from the people like mitch mcconnell, leaders on capitol mill? >> i only look 3 1/2 years ahead because i don't know after 2012 but kathleen is right. chris: so rush limbaugh will continue to be the big -- >> the g.o.p. is is this th -- their base is what -- the appeal to that base is what this whole thing is about. we've been talking about in terms. race based stuff and birther stuff, it is an increasingly old men and southerners. that is what the republican party is. and that dictates their politics. chris: trish. >> it's a huge problem for them. they need to shift and not have that as their basis. really start to focus more on the economy. because that's going to still be an issue going forward. if they could really harness that. a
with the moderates, but 75% of the republicans really sided with the rush limbaugh side of the party, and i think not only is this bad for republican prospects in terms of trying to change the demographics, which are increasingly moving against them. this is another issue the republicans had no compelling reason for voting the way they were voting. >> i think there were real reasons. republicans kept asking the question about the wise latina comment because they never got a full answer. if they had gotten a full answer, perhaps that might have changed things. certainly republicans have had problems appealing to certain groups but you're not going to appeal to any group whether it's african-americans, hispanic-americans or anybody else by selling out your principles. voters don't respect that. >> but it was the fact that the republicans seem to harp on such an insignificant thing, the wise latina comment, when sam alito had made similar comments and didn't have much else to do to go after her in the hearing. so they're the ones that elevated race much more so than the democrats did. >> again -- >>
angry mobs. >> reporter: some on display get stoked by the provocative megaphones of rush limbaugh who went so far as accusing democrats of wanting to soernlize medicine of nazi germany. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: to encourage attend, conservative organizers acknowledge they sent e-mail alerts to members but argue the anger is real. >> i think that the politicians should be careful about so easily dismissing this many people showing up and participating in the process. >> reporter: virginia democrat jim moran expects to get an earful. >> funny to be opposed. i don't think it's fine to come in with the objective of disrupting the town hall meetings. >> reporter: for "today," kelly o'donnell, nbc news, washington. >>> for more on the political impact of all of this let's turn to john horowitz, chief washington kornt for cnbc. john, good morning. >> hey, jenna. >> with all the shoving and yells at all the town halls it's hard to get a sense of which side is being heard. how big of an impact will this have on congress when they return
. yesterday talk show host rush limbaugh compared the president, speaker of the house nancy pelosi, the proposed health care reform, and the president's health care logo to nazism and/or hitler. and despite criticism from among others the conservative national review online, the antidefamation league, the american jewish congress, and rabbi marvin heier founder of the simon wisen thal center, he retrenched with the health care thing today. >> his health care logo looks damn like the nazi logo. i'm sorry but it does. i didn't create either logo but i have two eyes and i can see. infuriating democrats, good. is obama not got a website where he is asking supporters to provide the names of people providing disinformation about the health care system? what did i say yesterday that is not true? >> you know, there are people alive today who barely survived the holocaust. and there are many people alive today whose whole families were killed in the holocaust. nazism is not a metaphor for a political policy you disagree with. used dlib lirt eliberately to characterize an opponent it has a r
post" putting the facts out. what i'm urging individuals to do, not just listening to rush limbaugh, pull out facts, get nonpartisan groups, talk to them, talk to hops and health care provider, et cetera because for the first time everybody's invested in this. the president's had pharmaceutical company, health care providers, hospitals, community health centers all work on this together to make a difference and that's why i believe, and know that we're going to pass a bill that will take us in the right direction that's going to cover more americans for health care, make sure that people that have preconditions that are not denied for and forcing people in bankruptcy and bring down the cost. >> an interesting month listening to you and your swaernts. >>> >> a family spokesperson says eunice shriv is critically ill. a spokesman for arnold schwarzenegger says the golf governor is there with the family in cape cod. 88-year-old shriver a champion for the disabled about best known for her work to establish the special olympics. >>> the widow of tv pitchman billy mays says she's angry ove
limbaugh is pushing the nazi theme, comparing on his website the obama health care logo with the nazi swastika and devoting plenty of air time comparing the president's the united states and house speaker nancy pelosi to adolf hitler. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika. there are far more similarities between nancy pelosi and adolf hitter than between these people showing up at town halls to protest a hitler-like policy. that's being heralded by hitler-like logo. oh, another similarity. obama is asking citizens to wrap each other out, like hitler did. >> he's just like hitler. you know what that means? he deserves, right? that's where the actual republican party, the would-be responsible adult, opposed to health care reform. rnc chairman michael steele is going for the, who me? approach saying there is absolutely nothing to do with encouraging angry town hall protests. mr. steele said in a conference call, we're not encouraging people to be angry. some people that's how they express frustration, but that's not something deliberately coordinated by me or any
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
this into people's heads. have they not? >> yes, they shout all day, rush limbaugh and all of rest of them, that this is a trojan horse for a single payer plan, and it is, you know -- it is possible that over time, this will morph into something that resembles single payer, but it's not right now, an the insurance companies are in no danger of going out of business under this bill, under any version of this bill. so if we do end up with a single payer plan, it won't be for many, many years, and people argue to the contrary are just lying about the particulars of this program. obama by design did not move to single pay because he realized that the country wasn't ready for it. >> we have news that cash or clunkers has just passed which we'll get to detail the ex-next a minute. this last piece of tape, the heart of the thing. the last question went into a log diatribe asserting the president would somehow get his legislation passed without congress. just go and make it happen, he's dictator obama not the president, and she ended with this piece of tape. >> i don't believe sincerely -- i don't
by rush limbaugh, by newt gingrich, and some members of the judiciary committee. not all republicans but enough accusing her of being racist. they're probably going to hear about it. >> ari, and liz, thank you very much. the politics on this is going to be fascinating. people do tend to remember these votes. >> i think ari hit it on the head. obviously as joe scarborough put it, she may not be your kind of judge but the language that went around this process really was ugly when you have someone saying she's a reverse racist and some of the other awful things far beyond that. they may come back to haunt some of the republicans. we'll have to see. >>> our continuing coverage of the sonia sotomayor nomination continues after the break. we got it all covered on "the big picture" on msnbc. it's the chevy open house. and now, with the cash for clunkers program, a great deal gets even better. let us recycle your older vehicle, and you could qualify for an additional $3500 or $4500 cash back... on top of all other offers.. on a new, more fuel efficient chevy. your chevy dealer has more elig
limbaugh comparing nancy pelosi and the democrats to the nazis. that comes on top of those aechbt-obama town halls that featured at least one person carrying a sign that accused obama of having a nazi-style health plan. >> just say no! just say no! just say no! just say no! >>> as we pointed out before, this is a well-organized set of protests. those mob scenes are supported in part by a group called freedom works, and today the afl-cio, the labor organization announced it's going to send people to town halls as well to confront the anti-obama teams. we have organizers on both sides tonight to show the fight right here on the set. >>> plus, the battle for america. the story of the most exciting presidential election of our times. why did ted kennedy break with the clintons and support obama.
is not that we need pundits or activists, we need both. rush limbaugh rallies in the crowd, does a good job of educating people on the issues. others are the ones you rarely will hear calling congress. we need a variety of voices. the problem of the blogosphere is the writing. if i do something that protests, there will be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would do it their way instead of my way it will be much more effective. you get that everywhere. the right is notorious about that, everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or gen -- george will. the problem is when we start throwing stones to each other as opposed to throwing stones at the other side. i am a big believer at throwing stones at republican politicians who have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house, and it will hurt us, because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. we can throw a lot of stones right now. in the right blogosphere, you have some a competing voices is th
to spin the release of euna lee and laura ling into a diplomatic disaster. and limbaugh asks if president clinton hit on them. >> we saw standing before us president bill clinton. >> blackwater continues. more charges against eric prince running a jihad against muslims involved as witnesses against his company and tonight while supposedly protecting americans in iraq illegally dealing arms there. gitmo after threatening, torturing and imprisoning without charge or evidence could the bush administration possibly have sunk lower? yes, they bought fake testimony from witnesses with cash and shoes. the bubble headed bleach blond comes on at 6:00. >> in my home state of minnesota so far only two of these deals have actually been approved by the government. >> close, ms. news actress. 2%. not two. 2%. that would be different. and speaking of minnesota, the man who nearly
powell out of the party, i say dow really think --. >> rose: that is rush limbaugh, isn't it. >> well, it is a lot of people. i went out on my book tour and i was trying to explain to people, if you want to be a national party again, you got to win a seat or two in new england. and let me tell you something, people who look like me and talk like me from the south, we're probably not going to do well in northeast harvard maine. colin powell with. olympia snowee will. tony snow will. >> i just threw that out there. i own northeast. i'm sure it would be just like the book tour. vote for him. >> okay, if you say so, okay i will vote for him. but they kicked colin powell out of the party is insane. i learned on the book tour t is fascinating speaking in new england. hi a lot of people come up to me, a lot of older gentleman, especially come up to me and say ised to vote for republicans when they were like you. i said i'm really conservative. >> yeah. >> rose: . >> i'm like a libertarian i'm so conservative. >> no, no, no, no. you're not a hater. and what i realized on this book tour, two t
really.... >> rose: that's rush limbaugh. >> well, it's a lot of people. i went out on my booker to and i was trying to explain to people, if you want to be a national party again, you've got to win a seat or two in new england. and let me tell you something, people who lookike me and talk like me from the south, we're probably not going to do well in northeast harbor maine. colin powell will. olympia snowe will. >> rose: well, in the northeast... >> i just threw that out. there i own the northeast with mika with me. okay, mika, if you say so, i'll vote for you. but they kicked colin powell out of the party. you know what i learned on this book shower in it's fascinating. speaking in new england. i had a lot of people come up to me, a lot of older gentlemen especially come up to me and say "i used to vote for republicans when they were like you." said "i'm really conservative, i'm like a libertarian i'm so conservative." they said "no, you're not a hater." and what i realized on this book tour, two things, one good, one bad. the good thing is that moderates even people left of center, wil
that the republican tactics are going to backfire. when people hear rush limbaugh comparing the president of the united states to adolf hitler, the democratic party to the nazi party, when they see these kind of tactics going on, i think that's only in the end going to build support for what the president wants to do. >> house minority leader john boehner says the democrats are quote in denial instead of acknowledging the widespread. if we're dismissing these and if democrats are dismissing these questions about health care reform and how much it's going to cost that it could backfire on them? >> no one's dismissing the questions. everybody's willing to answer the questions. the senate finance committee's working very hard on this. the senate health and education committee has already done this. but you can't get any progress on this, at least if you're on the other side, by just standing there and screaming or by trying to flood these meetings and making it impossible to hold them. when you do this, all you're doing is i think assembling a whole bunch of joe the plumbers, the media's goi
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
of the challenges that the republican party has is that republican leaders like sarah palin, like rush limbaugh, are stealing all the headlines. they're the only ones articulating any sort of a coo co-herein message. i think it's the wrong people and one that the american people are rejecting and one democrats would be happy to go against, but until the new leadership finds a new coherent message they'll keep being in the spotlight. >> trent, do you agree she doesn't have a coherent message yet? what does she need to do? >> well, i think what she needs to do is go back and decide what she wants to do. i don't think any of us know. i don't know if she knows, honestly. but as i said earlier, she's got the grounds far foundation because she has a following and does have a voice and has legitimate interest. i disagree with mo. if you look at the messaging from a national stance, four to six weeks, they're pulling even. i don't disagree there are some lightning rods on conservative talk radio but i think the republican party is finding its voice. >> mo, a lot of people -- well, a lot of her speech,
is to demoralize and mock your opponents. that's why they hate rush limbaugh so much because he makes fun of the left. the daily coats have been good at defeating. most of you don't love in washington, d.c. o'new york. you live somewhere else and you don't have to go to cocktail parties and be beaten down all the time. the second thing is, get the tools. no excuse for not having the tools. i mean get training. it's not enough to come to one conference and think you know everything there is. i'm always striving to be a better writer. you can do that, too. go to conferences and read books. get the logistical tools, a blackberry or iphone that allows you to videotape things. a video camera might come in handy or audio record and tweet from your havend held device. you should all be on twitter. get net worked. there are a lot of people you need to know. get net worked with them. know who they are. i know this is a nonpartisan thing. there is a democratic party, but i do know that a couple of folks from the nrcc are here today, get to know them because if you are republican, they can plug you
to contend with. first, rush limbaugh happily admitted he wants our president to fail. then a republican senator openly admitted he wants to block the health insurance reform for millions as a way to -- quote -- "break the president." another republican senator admitted that at least half of the other side's opposition to reform is purely political. and an influential commentator advised the republicans to avoid consensus at all costs and instead go for the kill. these partisan tactics have consequences. these consequences will be evident when every kitchen table, every family budget and every american's peace of mind. and they're watching. a poll released last week found that a majority of americans credit president obama for putting partisanship aside, trying to work with congressional republicans to get this done for the good of the country. republicans, they found, weren't returning the favor. others may be focused on delaying health insurance reform, but we will make sure we won't let that hafplt we already have seen what happens when we do nothing. the costs of sitting this one out
